I agree . With Smackdown giving up athe US belt you know Rollins or Hardy will be headed to Smackdown. Alexa Bliss either Rollins or Hardy and a few more. These shakeups have never worked in the past and probably won’t work again. Sooner or later the roster will all be back together. I was hoping some of the guys not used much would get a push but that hasn’t been the case. Tyler Breeze, Dolph Ziggler , Baron Corbin are getting left at mid card and have a ton of talent. Now that Braun has been accepted by the fans they don’t know what to do with him. Braun v Brock would have been a much more entertaining main event but I don’t believe they will put the strap on Braun, I hope he doesn’t end up like Hillbilly Jim or George the animal Steele and become a side show

Meh. Hope they tell do something with this. I've yet to watch smackdown, I'll catch it tomorrow morning on hulu, but my guess is I won't be watching WWE a whole lot longer.

Also just noticing, WTF did they do with Nikki Cross!?!? Not fucking cool breaking up the group again. I didn't like it when they did that to SAWFT by holding back Carmella, and I like it even less with Nikki Cross continuing on with SAnitY.

Well at least smackdown has Joe to rely on if Nakumara is a dud as a heel.

I like the call ups of Sanity to the main roster and andrade Almas and zelina Vega.

Jeff Hardy is pretty much gonna be number three face behind Aj Styles and Daniel Brian.

Smackdown has actually come out pretty good out of this, I had hoped they would get Finn Balor but they kept AJ who I expected to head to Raw.

Samoa Joe on Smackdown away from management favourites like Reigns and Lesnar will be a good thing for him and he can hopefully establish himself in the main event.

Very few changes with tag-teams, the Ascension are dead in the water at this point and Breezango are a jobber team although ok for a bit of comic relief but nobody takes them seriously in the ring. Most expected New Day or The Usos to switch to Raw. I would have liked to see the Revival go to SD but Gallows/Anderson moving there is interesting. The Bar I expect to split soon due to Sheamus’ injury so this could be a good move for Cesaro. The Smackdown tag scene looks pretty healthy as they’ve retained all their key teams and gained the Club as well as Sanity.

Ziggler and McIntyre is interesting, I was liking Drew as a edgy babyface in NXT and his original heel run in WWE was a flop but I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes and I hope it works especially for McIntyre, these two men are loaded with charisma and personality as well as in-ring talent and the partnership could work.

No top talent switched sides it was all very much mid-card changes unless I guess a argument can be made that Zayn and Owens and Joe are top stars but they are not yet fully established as top draws.

Raw is still light on heels and I expect one from Ambrose or Rollins to turn unless they finally admit defeat with Reigns and turn him, a Balor heel turn could happen I guess but if that was to happen I would have expected them to keep him with the Club. Bobby Roode now on Raw I hope will turn heel sooner rather than later.

In my opinion these are the strongest from each division.......

Male: AJ Styles
Female: Charlotte Flair
Tag: Usos

All three are staying on Smackdown as is Daniel Bryan, on top of some good NXT call ups.

Vince has given Smackdown a brilliant roster and he usually decimates them. I wonder why his thought process is different this time to what he usually does.

The rosters have actually gone the way I suggested years ago with Raw being the show for the casual fan-base with big names and big characters while Smackdown becomes the smark show.

Smackdown is now home to the following:

AJ Styles
Daniel Bryan
Samoa Joe
The Usos
Shinsuke Nakamura
Charlotte
Asuka
Sanity
Gallows and Anderson
Jeff Hardy
Andrade Almas

Pretty smarky roster right there, if they’d added Balor then it would have been even more so, personally I would have traded him for Orton.

Hey all! 

Heard a lot of talk about how well Smackdown Live did on the Superstar Shakeup, but do you really think they dominated it as much as advertised? I think RAW made out well, too; McIntyre and Roode, especially, are gonna be stars on the flagship. Thoughts?

Smackdown pissed it easy

Raw got Jinder which is a -10

Smackdown got loads of exciting talents but the most exciting being The Miz, Almas and Joe
